Water is the essential part of life and it is assumed that next world war will be based on the scarcity of it. When water is polluted by various ways that means it affects flora and fauna of that area. The people living near the water bodies depend on it for irrigation and pisciculture activities. Water sample collected from Ramgarh Lake located in eastern part of Gorakhpur City of Eastern Uttar Pradesh state. Water is most precious natural resource expected to before from pollution. The physiochemical parameters are atmospheric temperature (AT), water temperature (WT), pH, electrical conductivity (EC), total dissolve solid (TDS), acidity (acid), alkalinity (alk), carbon dioxide (CO2), dissolve oxygen (DO), were mentioned on monthly basis for period of one time annual cycle that is January  2018 to December 2019. The result revealed that the reservoir water is useful for human use.
